    I should have given the star positions I used to do these
    calculations. The moon, Aldebaran, and Aries come from the U.S. Naval
    Observatory Celestial Navigation calculator, found at:
    The Dec, 1803 star postions for Tabit and PI 4 Ori are:
    Tabit (PI 3 Ori)
    RA 4h 39m 18.3s
    Dec +6? 36' 30.3"
    PI 4 Ori
    RA 4h 40m 46.2s
    Dec 5? 15' 30.3"
    In my first message, I mistakenly wrote PI 5 Orion instead of 4 in an
    explanatory comment following the table.
